This Monday, October 7th, President Jair Bolsonaro appointed commissioner Sérgio Costa Ravagnani to CADE.
Ravagnani is a tax attorney and was the deputy chief of economic policy to the president’s chief of staff. With his appointment formally published yesterday on the Official Gazette, he immediately took office in substitution to former commissioner Paulo Burnier.
More importantly, the appointment of the new commissioner reestablishes the minimum quorum of the Tribunal. Therefore, administrative deadlines, suspended in July due to lack of members in the Tribunal, will be resumed as of this Tuesday (October 8th) and the trial session scheduled for October 16th is confirmed.
